Donnalyn Bartolome nag-sorry matapos ma-bash sa ‘sexy baby’ photoshoot: It was an honest mistake…I feel terrible
NAG-SORRY ang aktres at social media sensation na si Donnalyn Bartolome sa lahat ng na-offend at naapektuhan ng kanyang latest pictorial para sa 28th birthday niya last Saturday, July 9.
Umani kasi ng batikos ang dalaga mula sa mga netizens nang kumalat ang mga litrato niya na kuha sa ginawa niyang photo shoot kung saan nag-portray siya ng isang sexy na sanggol o baby.
Sa bago niyang vlog sa YouTube, sinabi ni Donnalyn na naisip niyang magkaroon ng kakaibang sexy photo shoot para sorpresahin ang kanyang mga fans at social media followers.
“Contradicting ‘tong shoot na ‘to kasi baby ako sa shoot na ‘to but it’s my actual first daring and sexy photoshoot. Susubukan ko lang kasi maybe it’s time. Nahihiya nga ako eh,” pahayag ng aktres, singer at vlogger.
Kuwento ng vlogger, wala raw kasi siyang baby photoshoot kaya naisipan niya na magpa-picture na nakabihis na parang sanggol pero super sexy ang tema.
Maraming bumati kay Donnalyn at nagandahan sa kanyang mga litrato ngunit may mga bumatikos at nangnega rin sa kanya dahil hindi raw maganda sa panlasa ang ginawa niya.
Reaksyon ng netizen na si Mikee Brosas sa Facebook, “As a public figure with high algorithmic engagements, you should have been more aware of all your actions. In a broader sense, this is something off and disturbing.
“Portraying babies as hot and mature seems inappropriate. This would actually feed perpetrators’ ego and sexually fantasies,” aniya pa.
May isa pang FB user ang nagkomento ng, “This is DISGUSTING. You are a grown woman dressed up as a child posing seductively.”

Pero in fairness, may mga nagtanggol naman kay Donnalyn at sinabing masyado naman daw nilang sineryoso ang paandar ng dalaga na nais lamang mag-enjoy sa kanyang kaarawan.
“Laki naman ng problema neto sa buhay hindi ata to mabubuhay kung hindi mangengelam sa iba,” ang sabi ng isang nagtanggol sa aktres.
Kasunod nito, naglabas agad ng official statement si Donnalyn hinggil sa issue at sinabing wala siyang intensyon na makasakit ng kapwa at lalong hindi siya aware na maaaring maikonek ang birthday pictorial niya sa child abuse.
Narito ang bahagi ng pahayag ni Donnalyn: “It was an honest mistake, it was never my intention to enable one of the most horrifying acts here on Earth.
“I couldn’t remove my post right away because I needed it to copyright the photos to prevent the spread of it furthermore until I got a go signal from Facebook and other socmed managers, an assurance that they know I am the owner of the photo and they’ll help me correct this by taking down all of the posts involving this photoshoot.
“You may help us by sending the links of the post of anyone who reposted this for any reason at all. (via message),” sabi pa ng aktres.
Ayon sa vlogger, inakala niyang “light and funny” lang ang ginawa niya, “Almost a million people across socmed platforms thought of it light and funny because they know my personality and didn’t look at it that way hence our initial reaction to the idea was the same.. but upon reading other people’s perspective, I completely agree.”
Pag-amin pa niya, “I feel terrible, sick to my stomach and had disturbing flashbacks I’d rather not say.
“I was called crazy for being overprotective to all of my siblings, ones I took care of since they were babies.
“It has come to the point where I had to go to a psych to understand my actions because the level of protectiveness was quite extreme, all I’m saying is I’ve taken care of children since I was 11 years old, this was the last thing I would ever intend to do,” aniya pa.
Sa huli, nagpasalamat din siya sa kanyang followers na marespetong nagkomento sa kanyang ginawa at hindi siya agad hinusgahan at sinabihan ng maaanghang sa salita.
“Thank you to everyone who let me know, especially those who did it so kindly, you’re the type of people who help me become a better person everyday as I hold the responsibility of influencing millions. It’s not easy.. but I’ll do my best.
“While you’re here. I’d like to use this attention for those who want to help abused children.. There is a care-facility I was admitted in when I was a minor: Nayon ng Kabataan.
“The children admitted there carry so much pain, you can donate or send them little gifts to make them feel better. Thanks everyone and I’m sorry,” lahad pa ni Donnalyn.
Narito ang ilan sa comments ng followers ng dalaga sa FB.
